Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

In recent history, I definitely realized bass can bring you down. When you have too much in your song it'll suck up all the space and keep your song quiet - and the human ear can't hear it anyway. Roll off the bass so that everything else can get louder. Yep. I think I put too much in. I use techno...

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

You mention my mastering in your comments - and I agree, it is painfully obvious I am not sounding as polished as most other competitors - which sucks because I do try to master, but I am clearly not very good at it. I actually spend a lot of time mixing and get quite frustrated that I am obviously ...

... only problem - I mentioned it in the pub - and a pissed mate is now insisting on rephrasing every conversation so the letter "a" isn't used. He's an annoying prick.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Six

Hey, CR, if you're *that* keen, I am about to rank your Round 5 entry ... my wish is your command ;) Actually - I really like this challenge. It will produce a song I would not have normally written without the challenge, but doesn't direct the song in any particular way. Good job judges. /suck up

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

It's odd to me in your whole discussion of the motivation for making songs and participating in Nur Ein you never mention that it is a game. Games are fun. We are motivated to win the game in the terms of the game. The obvious byproduct is we have new songs to play. Yep. Nailed it. That's why I'm h...

"Nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh" is a valid alternate spelling for "Na na na na na na na"? Right?

I don't know what an elevator man is in this context. A number of medications are used to treat bipolar disorder. The medication with the best evidence is lithium...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Just to add to the statistical discussion, if you look at the variance of each contestant's scores (the expectation of the squared deviation of a random variable from its mean), it comes out as: 16.7 - Cavedwellers 10.5 - Balance Lost 9.2 - Glenn case 8.3 - 73 Keep It Beautiful 6.8 - strangelove 6 -...

Thank you for links. I had a quick listen to Gentle Brontosausaus - very impressive, as was your cameo with Pedro. I am sure you can provide an adequate level of awesomeness here.

I just hope the pitch wasn’t made of astroturf or they’d have a case of carpet burn they’d never forget. WTF?!?!? An astroturf pitch?!?!? Fucking philistine.

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

This whole Nur Ein has been entirely disturbing for me. I have been recording as "strangelove". There was no rhyme nor reason to that. I simply had no name and a friend at the pub suggested it. So I used it. But...since this started - for some reason I have started writing the most autobio...

A Sense of the Absurd - strangelove He found himself alone at Christmas time A vagabond in New South Wales But he could not resist that sirens song Calling him to Byron Bay He had a love of leg-spin bowling She had a playful streak That night on a lonely cricket pitch He found who could give the bal...
